More on John and Patrick Finn

Thank you to Ian Payne, who is g-grandson of Mary Payne nee.Finn, for adding this fascinating additional research to our history of the Finn family of Netwown, Birmingham:

John Finn

I have some information on John Finn born 1857, the son of patrick and catherine finn, it may be of help to you, he is buried up at saint Josephs, nechells,, in a grave just behind great nan Mary Jane Payne, he is in a tomb along with John Hughes, the husband of Elizabeth Hughes, nee Payne, she was my great aunt, john being my great uncle.

John Finn died 31/10/1924, his last address was 75 Coventry Road, Birmingham.

Addresses lived At:

Census: 1871, 12 Court 7 House London Prentice Street,St Mary's,Birmingham,Warwickshire
Occupation: 1871, Tube Worker

Census: 1881, 8 Court 1 House, Lench Street,Birmingham,Warwickshire
Occupation: 1881, Bricklayer's Labourer


Census: 1901, 1 Court 3, House Bath Street, St George,Birmingham,Warwickshire
Occupation: 1901, Bricklayer's Labourer

Reciept number at St Joseph's is Book 4 Page 92.

The tomb was already bought by Mary Jane Payne previous to his death, not too sure why, but also on the reciept it said that frederick payne was his nephew, rather than his cousin!!!!

Also in this grave was a man called John Allen Burke, all that I have noted on him was a connection with someone named Jane Crowe.

Patrick Finn
Patick Finn's wife was named Catherine Jennings, she was born in County Mayo, Ireland in 1833 and died in 1911, Patrick died in 1897, both in Birmingham. Patrick was buried on the 21 July 1897 at St Joseph's Nechells too, it is in the burials book at St Chads archives, but unfortunately there is no reciept for this grave or trace of a head stone. He died in the workhouse infirmary, Western Road, Winson Green.

There are also traces of another Patrick Finn in the archives at St Chads, who seems to born around the same time as James and Thomas Finn, he married a woman called Catherine Peacock, I have a feeling that this Patrick was the son of Martin Finn Born in Galway in 1820, I have to research this more.
